It is easy to set a label to a component, but is it possible to place a label on a single node?

For example, what I would be after, circled in red here:

    Please, add a complete document clearly illustrating your inetnt (i.e., a simple example of a circuit showing the "node" you want to label). – Gonzalo Medina Feb 4 '15 at 18:14

  • Look at texample.net/tikz/examples/circuitikz The example is what you are looking for. – jotagah Feb 4 '15 at 19:43

You can use a standard TikZ node and its label key:



    node[label={[font=\footnotesize]above:Node}] {}
  to[R,*-*] (2,0) 
    node[label={[font=\footnotesize]-30:$1$},label={[font=\footnotesize]150:$2$}] {}
  to[R,*-*] (4,0) 
    node[label={[font=\footnotesize]above:$3$}] {}
